Yes! I've read a lot of books on addictions but this one hit the nail on the head for me. I especially liked the way she helps you determine how "bad" he is on a scale, and how to know if he can be helped. Also good to know are the "early warning signs."
How "Bad" Is He?
I've been in an addictive relationship for five years. The first four I was a co-addict with him, but once I got sober he pulled away. I will not give up on him until I've tried everything in this book. If I do decide to leave at least I'll know I tried everything and can walk away lighter and with more dignity. I highly recommend this book.
His own voice!
I love that he shares so much of himself and his feelings -- I could feel the same feelings as he shared them.
It mostly made me laugh out loud -- he's hilarious!
I really appreciate that he shared so much of himself and allowed himself to be vulnerable. Love that in a man!
Informative, concise, thorough
Lyn Kelley has done it again! This book is an excellent tool to help coaches and therapists build their practices. It is honest, ethical, current, with lots of great tips.
Informative, Interesting, Valuable
The author tells it like it is. Before I read this book I was doing it all wrong and probably causing my boyfriend to be more weak and passive. Since I've been using her strategies my boyfriend has changed in positive ways! When you change, HE changes. I'm so grateful for this book -- it saved my relationship!
Yes, it really helped me.
This book is fabulous! Finally, someone gave "voice" to what I was thinking and wondering all along. It really helped to have someone define the different types of cheapness - which ones can be dealt with and which ones can't be. Before I read this book I "fed into" men's cheapness instead of handling it the right way. Now I know how to respond to the first signs of cheapness in a nice, polite, tactful way.
I learned that "cheapness" has a lot more to do with things other than money. Often carries over into other things like being lazy about putting energy and time into the relationship and not being thoughtful and considerate.
Yes, I prefer to hear the author's voice.
I especially like how she relates her ideas to real life stories and celebrity stories that we have all heard about.
This is the best, most concise book I’ve ever read on how to be successful in dating and love. Dr. Lyn tells it like it is – no fluff, just facts – and now it all makes sense. Before I read this book I was either not dating good men or I was dating good ones all wrong! I’ve made most of the mistakes she writes about…but no more! Now I’m doing it her way, and I’m getting much more positive results. Plus I’m having a lot more fun!
Easy to understand.
Her "no frills" style of writing.
How to get your life coaching practice started and promoted.
Dr. Lyn's book is a wonderful tool for building your coaching practice. She does a masterful job of presenting in a useful concise form. Her work is an excellent investment for anyone at all interested in coaching.
I felt like Dr. Lyn was talking directly to me…like she is my best friend and she really cares about me!
This book really helped me get over a guy I recently broke up with and reinforced that he was not the right person for me. I am ready to move on and feel much more empowered to find a better man!
I now know the signs of a liar and cheater!
I just finished listening to this book and couldn't put it down. It actually comforted me after my breakup with my cheating boyfriend. Now I know leaving him was the right thing to do, and in the future I feel I'll know if a man is the cheating type a lot earlier. I wish I had known about the "red flags" before, but at least I do now!
How to Cure a Commitment Phobic -- so you can determine whether or not he's a Player or a Commitment Phobic (or both).
She described the guy I'm dating to a tee!
Now I know the "red flags" to watch out for.
I just finished reading this book and just felt I had to write a review. I really like how Dr. Lyn writes in plain and simple terms. I was so sick of being pursued by players that I just completely stopped trusting any man. She explains how to know if they are a player and whether or not they can be changed into a stayer. She explains the difference between players and commitment phobics, and how you have to deal with each of these types very differently. Plus this book is very entertaining (learning how to play their game better than them!). I will definitely use her strategies and I've already shared them with some of my friends who tried them and said they worked.
